Well.. not really all that steampunk, but I'm very into the obscure. I'm planning on four children, two boys, two girls ideally. Razz The girls will be Wednesday and Nightingale, and the boys Alistair and Dante. Not sure what to do if I end up with more than two of one gender, though! Very Happy Or what middle names. I rather think Wednesday Aurelie might be nice...

Well, my daughter (first and only child-SO FAR!), we named her Charity Irene. Interesting enough story behind it, Chairty came about when I was around 13-14 years old, playing billards. Was sinking for the other, rather than myself, and made the offhanded comment it's because I was a charitable guy, so much so, I would name my first daughter Charity! And so I did! Irene is for my wife's great grandmother who passed before she was born.

Our first SON will be named Gabriel Alexander. I shall call him Alec.

Other names:

Boy: Xenos Markus and Nathaniel Tobias are the only two set in STONE. Ones I'm pushing for, being the insane twisted individual that I am: Maher-shalal-hash-baz Mephibosheth (so they'll hate me in kindergarten) and Tedward Jimmothy (I was drunk. What?)!

Girl: Aeryn Skye is all we've really discussed, as far as set in stone. I'm also fond of the name Victoria Anne/Anne Victoria. If the powers that be decide NOT to grand me a son, then Gabriella Alexia would work nicely. I also dig the name Moira. Have not decided on a middle name that flows with it.

For EITHER, Kick-a-Hole-in-the-Soup is an old favorite of mine. Not really steampunk, but fun none the less!

No Children are being planned but Im getting married next year..... now I have been told by the future mrs that im not allowed to double barrel our names though I think it would be very cool If i got my way then I would be MR Wesley Wayne Perriman-Batty, I quite fancy doing carrying on in education so I can have the Official title of Professor Perriman-Batty

Now the future wifes opinion on why I can not go down this line as It will be unfair on our children (as least she has come to terms that there might actually be children one day)

So I do sit and think what I think would be a good name for prosperity then down scale the idea so it would appeal to the wife!
Plus my mother used a lots of the cool names i quite fancied to name her pets!!! so that a no to Baldric, Silas, Phoebe, Hector, Tabitha, Bertie, Lucy, Roscoe, Rocky.

Even just using the surname I was given has its own interesting problems a good name like Oscar Alexander Perriman would result in the initials being O.A.P
Marcus Oliver Perriman = M.O.P
and the list goes on but the best one by far is the future wife's initials become H.M.P (Her Majesty's Prison) and what better acronym for a wife is there?

I've always been fond of the name Anastasia. Of course there's Cain for a son.

For twins there could be
Castor and Pollocks
Henry and Edward (middle names would be Jekyl and Hyde of course)
Brutus and Corineus
Gog and Magok
Chang and Eng
Ant and Dec

I already have 4 offspring and 3 grand kids plus one on the way so I have absolutely no intention of spawning. However my mis-guided son, who has a good solid Victorian name already, claims that if he had known that Hepzibah was a family name (back in the 19th C) then he would have preferred that, despite my pointing out that it is a girl's name!

Whoa!

That was a tangenty thread and no mistake! Shocked

Passions do seem to have run slightly high on this Forum at times I've noticed. Perhaps it's the phsychological shock of having the Brass Goggles umbilical cord uncerimoniously cut!

I have no children and I don't expect I ever will at this point, but for a Girl I'm very taken with the name Ashelia, inspired by Final Fantasy twelve.

And for a Boy? If I was feeling particularly cruel on naming day, Arbuthnot has always made me chuckle. tongue
